My dear friends in Pakistan - how are you? 
I am thinking of you all - it seems that things are not well there - I hope you are all safe.

Hi everyone!

This is a real bad time for me; for this to happen as there is already a shortage of blood due to holidays and now all the institutes will remain closed for at least 3 more days. My transfusion was due today but it had been previously cancelled due to shortage and now the blood camp that was scheduled today will probably also be cancelled. I just hope that my miracle Hb. sustains a little bit more.

 :-\

How is everyone else doing?

Thanx for caring everyone  :hugfriend

What i experienced yesterday was horror, it was like those horror movies where people are trying to reach their homes and their loved ones and and they are stuck somewhere and loosing hope,i don't know how i survived that moments, me and my mother were in a shopping mall which is on a drive of 20 minutes from our house in normal conditions,we were shopping for my sis's wedding as she is getting married in february,we were on a shop and all of a sudden people started running and the shop keeper told us that Benazir Bhutto is assasinated and market is getting closed and situation is not good outside, it was 6:30PM, when we got out side, there was total chaos out there every one was running and cars were jammed badly,i thanked God that i wasn't driving myself and my mom's driver was with us,some how we made to the main street but there was a total traffic jam, people were running to their homes and women who had kids with them were crying and asking for a ride to everyone as public transport was not accepting any new passengers,there was an intersection after 5 minutes of drive,which could have led us to our home with in half an hour, but there was no space to turn your wheels right or left, cars were going bumper to bumper,cars honking,people yelling,though there was no shooting or anything going on there at that time, but people knew that it would start happening eventually.
So we were forced with the on going traffic to go just opposite of our home,some one living in Karachi can understand my position,we were at Gul Plaza Saddar,we live in Clifton,and we were forced to go towards Quaid's tomb,traffic was real slow, and cell phone communication is another story,i had 3 cell phones,i was constantly trying to reach anyone,ANYONE whom i know to release my panic,and to let my sis know at home that we are ok,and was trying to locate my husband,father and brother,as they were bound to be outside home,coz that's the time they normally leave their offices,neither SMS nor calls were connecting,somehow one of my so many calls got connected to my friend and i asked her to call my sis and tell her that we were ok ,and asked her to call my husband if possible,when we reached a lil ahead of Quaid's tomb,there was a left hand street that could have led us to Sharah-e- Faisal,where we thought things would be easy and roads clear,but at that left hand street people were standing with guns in there hands,setting fire to public buses and shooting,i don't know what they saw in us, that they allowed us to pass,with out shooting at our car,and after nearly five minutes when we reached Sharah-e-Faisal,it was TOTALLY JAM PACKED with cars,i don't know how that time passed, i was totally unable to connect to my husband and i didn't where he was?was he safe? and he was wondering the same about me.
So long story short ,it took us 2 and a half hours to reach our home from a shopping mall which was on a 20 minutes drive from our home,and in that time i wasn't sure that i'd be able to see the faces of my loved ones,and i was thinking that my husband doesnt even know how to prepare an injection,let alone deferal pump,what would happen to zainab's ferritin?

Anyways,I HATE POLITICS.(BUT I LOVE MY COUNTRY)

Hi everyone,

Zaini, I'm so glad that you and your family are O.K.

Something similar happened to one of our relatives and they arrived at 3 AM at night. Everyone thought that they were gonners but thank God Almighty they came home safe.

Furthermore, a small mob came in our neighbourhood and smashed all the street lights and gate lamps of everyone's home. Then when they went to the nearby square; police came and shot tear gas which could be smelled even from our house. It reminded me of my old chemistry lab of my college :biggrin

Well, we are safe and no damage to us. The only bad thing that happened to me last night was that I couldn't come online for the chat :wah
